Robert Andjelic is Canada’s largest farmland owner. He sees huge potential for the agriculture sector – if Canada doesn’t mess up a once-in-a-century opportunity
If you had to come up with a worst-case scenario for a global food crisis, it would look a lot like what’s unfolded this year: a dangerous combination of war, drought and punishingly high prices for fertilizer, fuel and crops.
When the food and agricultural arm of the United Nations released its annual report on the state of food insecurity this summer, the agency warned that 345 million people are on the brink of starvation, and that looming famines threaten to bring about “global destabilization, starvation and mass migration on an unprecedented scale.”

The largest farmland owner in Canada differs with the country’s largest farm lender on where land values are heading in 2022.
Farm Credit Canada recently told The Western Producer that the ratio of land prices to farm income is at a historic high point with little room for future growth.
FCC chief economist J.P. Gervais wonders if commodity prices and interest rates are at a tipping point, which could result in a weakening of that key ratio.
That could in turn lead to a decrease in farmland values in the prairie provinces for the first time in decades.
“We’re at the top of the cycle for sure,” said Gervais.

Imagine it’s the year 2000 and there are two investors, with $1 million each.
One investor buys $1 million worth of gold and the other purchases $1 million worth of Saskatchewan farmland.
By 2020, who is better off?
The simple answer is gold.
In 2000, gold was valued at US$272 per ounce. On Aug. 4, gold hit US$2,000 an ounce for the first time in history. Ignoring inflation, gold is now 7.35 times more valuable than it was in 2000.

Robert Andjelic, one of the largest landowners in Saskatchewan, is moving to the province.
Andjelic, the founder of Andjelic Land, has based his business out of Calgary since 2011.
That changed about a month ago.
“We have relocated our office to Regina as of March 1, 2020,” Andjelic Land said in a news release. “We are looking forward to being more accessible to you, our tenants and being even more involved in the Regina and Saskatchewan communities.”

Driving south on Highway 9 in eastern Saskatchewan on a gusty but sunny day in late April, Andjelic rested one hand loosely on the steering wheel and sat in the relaxed posture of someone who spends a lot of time on rural roads.
Andjelic estimated he puts 60,000 to 65,000 kilometres on his Dodge Ram annually, most of it accrued in rural Saskatchewan.
He covers all those kilometres because he likes to check in on the farmland he owns in the province, 210,000 acres ranging from the United States border north to Prince Albert.
Andjelic, dressed in a black baseball hat, green shirt, black leather jacket, jeans and cowboy boots, doesn’t fit the image of a corporate businessperson who controls land worth tens of millions.

The world was shocked by the tragic events that took place. We are at a loss for words and know that this letter will not bring back our loved ones or those affected by this event. The one thing we do know is how strong this community is and the resilience that lives in the people of this amazing Province and Nation. One day at a time we will work together to heal these open wounds and find a way to honor those young lives that paid the ultimate sacrifice to follow their dreams and play the sport they deeply loved.
